Cover Photo: I Found Myself - Ronak Sawant

The moment you find yourself, you discover something magical.

I have found myself.
I am not a part of this whole thing called the universe.
I am also not different and separate from it.
I am the universe.

मैंने अपने आप को ढूंढ लिया है। (I have found myself.)
मैंने ज़िंदगी को समझ लिया है। (I have understood life.)
मैंने अपने आत्मा से दोस्ती करली है। (I have made friends with my soul.)
मैंने भगवान से बात की है। (I have talked to God.)
मैंने इस जहान को अपना लिया है। (I have adopted this place.)
मैंने इस दुनिया को पहचान लिया है। (I have recognised this world.)
मैंने दुःख और दर्द को झेल लिया है। (I have suffered sorrow and pain.)
मैंने दुनियादारी के बारे में सीख लिया है। (I have learned about worldly life.)
मैंने प्यार और ख़ुशी को महसूस किया है। (I have felt love and happiness.)
मैंने शांति पायी है। (I have found peace.)

मरने से तो डर नहीं लगता अब। (I do not feel afraid of dying now.)
लेकिन उससे पहले, ऐसे जीना है कि मौत मुझसे बोले, "यार, तू क्या है?" (But before that, I want to live such a life that death says to me, "Man, what are you?")

Cover Photo: Mountain is my second home! - Ronak Sawant

They say home is where the heart is but my heart is free and belongs in the mountains.

The mountain is my second home. Whenever I come to the mountains, I feel like I returned home. I love the mountains. I have a relationship with the mountains. I am lost, in its beauty and simplicity. I am lost, seeing the view from the top of it. The fun of screaming from standing at the top of the mountain is the fun that is very different.

Feels good there!
Far from this noise.
Far from this crowd.
Far from this run.
Far from this delusion.
Far away, but close to my heart.

~~~

पहाड़ मेरा दूसरा घर है।


वे कहते हैं कि घर जहाँ दिल है, लेकिन मेरा दिल स्वतंत्र है और पहाड़ों में है।

पहाड़ मेरा दूसरा घर है। जब भी पहाड़ों पर आता हूँ ऐसे लगता है के मैं घर वापस लौट गया। पहाड़ों से प्यार है मेरा। पहाड़ों से रिश्ता है मेरा। खो जाता हूँ, इसकी सुंदरता और सादगी में। खो जाता हूँ, इसके चोटी के ऊपर से नज़ारा देखकर। पहाड़ के चोटी के ऊपर खड़े रहकर चिल्लाने में जो मज़ा है ना, वह मज़ा बहुत ही अलग है।

अच्छा लगता है वहाँ पर।
इस शोर से दूर,
इस भीड़ से दूर,
इस भागा-दौड़ी से दूर,
इस मायाजाल से दूर,
बहुत दूर, लेकिन मेरे दिल के करीब।

Cover Photo: Thank you, Dance - Ronak Sawant

I am happy and satisfied with what dance has given me in my life so far.
Dance made me the person I never thought I would become one day.
Dance made the human and artist in me alive.
Dance made me befriend my soul.
Dance made me connected to the universe.
Dance helped me deeply understand life, love, and freedom, in general, about myself.
Dance made my life worth living.
Thank you so much, dance, for coming into my life and making it so beautiful. Today I can proudly say to myself and this world that "Maine dance ko jiya hai!" (I lived dance!)

Jab maut mujhe bulayegi na apne paas, toh main khushi se nachte-nachte jaana pasand karunga.
(When death comes and says it's time to leave, I would happily like to go by dancing.)

Cover Photo: Life is a Mountain - A Poem by Ronak Sawant

Life is a mountain we have to climb
Enjoy the journey taking one step at a time
There’s no shortcut; there’s no easy way
But the road to the top is fun and play

Don’t let fear or anything stop you
Just keep going and appreciate the view
Sometimes you will slip, and sometimes you will fall
I know you are so strong that you will get up and stand tall

You’ll meet new people; you’ll make some friends
Some will leave you, and some will stay until the life ends
At times you will be lost and feel completely alone
I know you will find yourself and explore the unknown

High altitude will teach you the great lessons
Your attitude, belief, and confidence are priceless weapons
Crevasse is an obstacle that will make your time difficult
Wear your crampons, get on the ladder, pass and exult

Avalanche may come, and you may lose special someone
That's life, and the show must go on
You’ll have your moments; you’ll have the time of your life
Always be grateful for this gift that you are alive

Love, laugh and learn from your experience
Find your purpose and know your existence
When you reach the summit, don’t be afraid to help others
Be the climber that not only climbs but also creates more climbers

Life is a mountain we have to climb
Enjoy the journey taking one step at a time
The summit is what drives us
But remember, the climb itself is what matters

Cover Photo: Zindagi aur Mai - Ronak Sawant

पता नहीं ज़िंदगी कहाँ ले जा रही है मुझे।
कभी यहाँ,
तो कभी वहाँ।
कभी रंगमंच पर,
तो कभी सड़क पर।
कभी इधर,
तो कभी उधर।
और, कभी किधर भी नहीं।

 ज़िंदगी, चलते रहने दे तेरा ये प्यारा सिलसिला।
बस दुआ करता हूँ के इस सफर में रह जाए कुछ अधूरा।
बस दुआ करता हूँ के कभी रुक जाए ये सफर मेरा तेरा।
बस दुआ करता हूँ के कभी टूट जाए ये अनोखा रिश्ता हमारा।

~~~

Zindagi aur Mai


Pata nahi zindagi kahan le jaa rahi hai mujhe.
Kabhi yahan,
Toh kabhi wahan.
Kabhi rangmanch par,
Toh kabhi sadak par.
Kabhi idhar,
Toh kabhi udhar.
Aur kabhi kidhar bhi nahi.

Ae zindagi, chalte rehne de tera yeh pyaara silsila.
Bas dua karta hoon ke iss safar mein reh na jaye kuch adhura.
Bas dua karta hoon ke kabhi ruk na jaye yeh safar mera tera.
Bas dua karta hoon ke kabhi toot na jaye yeh anokha rishta humara.

Cover Photo: STRUGGLES IN LIFE - Ronak Sawant

Whether you are an Artist, Doctor, Engineer, Lawyer or a Human in general, the thing called struggle is always there in everyone’s life. Sometimes we struggle with the food that we eat two times a day where we end up doing a few adjustments or passing day eating nothing at all thus keeping the stomach empty. While sometimes we struggle with not having a home to live, a bed to have that peaceful sleep, proper clothes to wear or even footwear’s to cover the foot. While sometimes we struggle in a relationship, for a job, for not having enough time to spend with family, friends and the one whom we love from the bottom of our heart. While sometimes we struggle for happiness, love, and peace in life. And above all, one of the biggest struggles in life is for money; where some people end up doing something wrong to get this.

Whatever the struggle you are going through in life right now will help you develop the strength that you will need for tomorrow. The struggle comes in everyone’s life, but it doesn’t stay forever. A struggle is a time that comes in our life to surprise us, to make us feel weak and to test us inside and out.

You need to accept the struggles occurring in your life. You need to embrace them, understand and fight them. Don’t quit! Each one of you who is reading this must know that your journey, dreams, purpose, and life are beautiful and they are way too big to give up on these struggles. So, if nothing is going good in your life, take a break or even cry during these struggles. But, don’t give up! Please don’t!

Close your eyes and see your dreams. Open your heart and believe in yourself. Regardless of whether you are feeling weak, smile and make yourself stronger each day with your love, passion, belief, and will. Struggle in life is temporary. Your day will come! Struggles are hard to face and very difficult to conquer, but during this time we have to be stronger than ever to battle it out. Also, we should never lose our hope, have patience, trust in ourselves and god and keep working hard.

You know, I have had some of my dreams come true fighting my struggles, and it feels just amazing. You can never find this feeling in anything else. I believe in your aspirations and you. So let me know when you conquered your struggles and made your dream come true. It will motivate and inspire me more to keep dreaming.

Struggles in life - Ronak Sawant

Struggle in life is to make our life's journey, adventurous. So believe in yourself and conquer the struggles in life.

Always remember that,
You are more beautiful than you can imagine,
You are more powerful than you think you are,
You are more special than you will ever know,
You are so much more than you will ever realise.

"Live your struggles, Live your life."

Cover Photo: आवारा हूँ, आर्टिस्ट हूँ, आज़ाद हूँ! (Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!) - Ronak Sawant

आवारा हूँ, आर्टिस्ट हूँ, आज़ाद हूँ!
खुद से सीखा है।
खुद को पहचाना है।
इस सुंदर सी दुनिया में मैं,
खुशी का पैगाम लेकर जी रहा हूँ।

आवारा हूँ, आर्टिस्ट हूँ, आज़ाद हूँ!
ना कल की है चिंता,
ना मरने का है डर,
बस यूँ ही चला मैं हँसता, गाता और मुस्कुराता,
ऐसा है मेरा ये प्यारा सफर।

आवारा हूँ, आर्टिस्ट हूँ, आज़ाद हूँ!
जी रहा हूँ।
खुश हूँ।
इतना काफी है।
इतना काफी है।

~~~

"Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!"

- Ronak Sawant

Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!
Khud se seekha hai.
Khud ko pehchana hai.
Iss sundar si duniya mein main,
Khushi ka paigaam lekar jee raha hoon.

Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!
Na kal ki hai chinta,
Na marne ka hai darr,
Bas yunhi chala main hasta, gaata aur muskuraata,
Aisa hai mera yeh pyaara safar.

Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!
Jee raha hoon.
Khush hoon.
Itna kaafi hai.
Itna kaafi hai.

Cover Photo: "Dance changed me! Dance made me!" - Ronak Sawant

Never in my life had I thought that a kid as crazy as me would ever have a voice or would be able to express or move a body in a way that is so different from other human beings. It is dancing that did this magic to me. I know, this might sound weird to you. But dance is truly magical! And to be a dancer is like creating all the magic. The dance changed my life. It made me the person that I am today.

Ever since dance came into my life, it’s like I’ve found happiness, love, and peace in my life. It’s something that makes me feel alive, makes me feel connected to my soul, makes my life complete. If dance and music didn’t exist, I don’t think I would have lived my life with a happy heart, loving soul, and peaceful mind.

To be a dancer is beautiful,
To be a dancer is a dream come true,
To be a dancer is magical,
To be a dancer is to be me!

Dance changed me!
Dance made me!
Dance saved me!
